“Nothing but the power of Truth can prevent the fear of error, and prove man’s dominion over error.” (Science and Health, page 380)
We can seek to feel in control by human will. We can try to be free of fear by putting on toughness. We can analyze ourselves and others and so hope to gain a better understanding of how to beat down the blues, the anxieties, the limits on our freedom and peace.
But these remedies can’t really set us free. Fear and other mistaken beliefs about life can only be fully prevented and conquered by a power beyond human efforts. It is by divine Truth alone that we can really know our dominion. For it is Truth, God, that gave us this supremacy, and this by reflection, not exertion.
The Truth that will prove our dominion is that fact of our divine nature as sons and daughters of God. The power that will reveal harmony and authority is the Truth that we are not in control, nor need to be. God, divine Love, is governing us and all creation. Our dominion over fear and error is found by letting go of control—by realizing with grateful joy that God has our Life, and He is pure goodness and Love, forever with us and for us.
